Ironicaly his treatment of the Jews was the initial point for creating the new state of Israel. The persecution and extermination of so many Jews brought them to see that they should have their own land where they can live in peace. Sadly the world is still hating the Jews and likes to go on what Hitler and the Nazis started.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) prophet of Islam most beloved and respetful person in history. Born in 570.he is the last messenger of God. He is the the one who gave the message of Love peace and told to people that there is only one God to worship. Miracle is that Qoran Book he gave is still in original Condition after mote than 1400 years.Only this is the book in the world never altered or changed and never a new edition came out. His teachings are implemented all around the world and there are 52 Islamic countries in the world and Islam is the 2nd biggest religion in the world. Billions of people around the world are his followers.

You are right, Muhammad should be ranked higher. And also true is that Muhammads teachings are human, they are manageable. Christs teachings are not human, therefore You Need God Himself to keep to them.

Muhammad should be ranked higher. There is a list of Hart, who put im in front of Jesus and his reason is astonishing. Hart said that he himself would have ranked Jesus first, if all the people who today identify themselves as Christians actually followed Jesus's teachings more substantially. He considers contemporary Muslims more influenced by Muhammad than contemporary Christians are by Jesus. And this is absolutely true, I think, because if you read Jesus teachings and look Christianity you can state clearly that they do very seldom follow his examples whereas the teachings of Muhammad, seem to be more easy manageable for humans. No doubt Muhammad should be ranked higher. But he seems to be not very much liked in this list

As a Christian I respect him and love his teachings about peace and how he unified us to a One True God both Islam and Christian. I have no arguments with him as the most influential PS: to those who say that our beliefs are obsolete and useless, we don't care! One aspect of these prophets (both Muhammad & Jesus) have in common other than being sent by God/Allah/Jehovah/Yahweh/etc. is that they are also great philosophers who taught us the truth & value of life - on how we should live in peace and love.

During the 23-year period of his prophethood, Muhammad accomplished what by any account must be considered among the most significant achievements of human history. First, he transmitted both the text of the Qurʾān and his own understanding of the Divine Word, which is the foundation of all later Quranic commentaries. Second, he established a body of Sunnah and Hadith that are, after the Quran, the most important sources for all things Islamic. Third, he laid the foundation for a new religious and spiritual community, taught many disciples, and created the means for the continuity and transmission of the Islamic tradition. Finally, he formed a new society, unifying Arabia in a sociopolitical structure based on the Quran and establishing an empire of faith in the hearts and minds of his followers, who then took his message to the farthest confines of the Earth. It can therefore be argued that Muhammad’s mark on history was as profound and enduring as anything recorded in the pages of human history. - Seyyed Hossein Nasr

The Hajj was one of the most attractive elements in Islam to me as a non-Muslim and then as a Muslim. When I finally became a Muslim after 20 or more years of thinking it over, the first thing I wanted to do was make the Hajj. When I circled the Ka'aba for the first time, I was in a state of wonder. You’re there with ten of thousands of people, all doing the same thing at once. You're literally putting God at the center of your life. For that period of time. - MICHAEL WOLFE

Transmitted from Ali, who, when asked to describe the prophet, would say- His face was not narrow, nor was it fully round, but there was a little bit of roundness to it. When he looked at someone, he looked at them with his face turned perfectly towards them. Whoever saw him unexpectedly was in awe of him, and whoever associated with him familiarly loved him. Anyone who would describe him would say, I never saw before him or after him the like of him. Peace be upon him.

MUHAMMAD was always very insistent that he was not a divine figure and he always warned his followers not to do with him what the Christians had done to Jesus and put him on a pedestal and say that he was God or divine. He was not, he was an ordinary human being and the Muslims have taken that seriously. But what they do say is that MUHAMMAD is the perfect man. That if you look at MUHAMMAD, you can see how a perfect act of surrender to the divine had been made. - KAREN ARMSTRONG

First, Mandela is already listed here and with an entry written in something rather more recogniseable as English than what you've offered up here. Second, you can read my more detailed comment under the above entry, but the question isn't whether Mandela is better known than Oprah bloody Winfrey but whether he has been a more significant, unique influence in history, which if you were more familiar with his largely symbolic role in the ending of apartheid (as opposed to, say, Mbeki's more active role) or the reversals his policy of racial harmony has suffered under the ANC of today, you'd be in a better position to realise that his historical impact is somewhat limited.

he is overrated a s a scientist, but not as a man of courage. He became a symbol and famous because he stood courageous against the Roman Catholic Church. It was not he who detected that the Earth revolves around the sun. The astronomers of the Vatican knew this already, but they, in their pride, wanted to keep the people uneducated to establish their authority.

Actually 'the experimental method' in the modern sense is traditionally attributed to Francis Bacon. It's not that what Galileo did wasn't experimentation, but he never engaged in the kind of sustained methodological argument for the necessity of empiricism which Bacon did. That said, Galileo certainly deserves to be up here.

you are ignorant people he called Galileo Galilei! he has invented a "little" thing called "experimental method" on which the same science is based. He has invented the same science and would deserve per second to be at least sets! He has not invented the telescope! Him with a seplice strengthened spyglass has scientifically "confirmed" the theories of Copernico! Does it seem you little?

I find it sad that Galileo Galilei's name is spelled wrong. His real name was Galileo di Vincenzo Bonaiuti de' Galilei and he did not invent the astonomical telecope. Do a little research to uncover for yourself, the genius that was Galileo Galilei and I'm sure you will find he easily belongs within the top 10.

Epicurus Report Abuse
Greek philosopher,Similar to Charvak, thendian philosopher held pleasure is good, by which they meant freedom from pain and anxiety, not as one who indulges in sensual pleasure.Moder utlitarian theories of Jeremy Bentham and J S Mill refined these principles till it faced its challenge in the Great Depression along with General Equilibrium theories.John Maynard Keynes tried to justify with liquiditu preference theories which were questioned in Welfare Economics by Pareto but still did not question utilitarianism fundamentally.Social Choice theories of K J Arrow appeared to be axiomatic and economists worked hard to develop Political Economy version by axiomatization as done by Amartya Sen. All this was overturned by Manu in Methodological Frame and LL.B, a workon Law, Economics and Organization by bringing in Analyzer and market pulse in social choice theories.
